Best Psychic Type Pokemon
The Top Ten
Yeah baby! Mewtwo King! it totally deserves it, after all it has been though. mostly after getting stabbed by deoxey... I could explain how awesome mewtwo is forever but my hands hurt when I type so bye.
Laugh out loud how do people even get the idea espeon and alakazam could match up with mewtwo. Lets take out his new mega evolution (Y) which makes him the strongest Pokemon in the entire series, seconded only by his (X) mega evolution. so yeah take that fact out and plain mewtwo has base stats totaling 680! Espeon base stats fall at about 525 and alakazam 490... only reason he is on any top ten is because of nostalgia. Plus Metagross near bottom of the list has base stat of 600 topping both these I do not understand where people even get the basis for their votes sure the Pokemon are good but this is a top ten list not a top ten favorite list sigh
It doesn't matter if you got a level 50 in linked battle"aka battle spot" it matters of what moves he has I recommend one move that heals Mewtwo "Recover" and one physic move and one non physic move "for dark and ghosts and etc."
So yeah I recommend using any STRONG TM you have and if you got the move role play you can even take ability's of Pokemon if thare good (I GOT NOT A CLUE WHAT THE HEY ROLEPLAY IS EVEN USED FOR) and also in triple to double battles you can take aka mimic the ability of the Pokemon next to you on your team back to mewtwo mega mewtwo in both X and Y can almost beat ANYTHING
Mewtwo used to be an overpowered Pokemon, but now with 2 mega forms, it's EXTREMELY overpowered. I once knocked out an intire team with level. 100 mega Mewtwo Y and psystrike. Mewtwos sig move psystrike is sooo powerful! Not only does it have very high base power, more pp than most legendary moves, but it also uses defense instead of special defense! It's very useful for knocking out opponents with low defense. Now with TWO MEGAS you can choose what sort of an attacker you want! If you like SpA go Mewtwo Y, and it you Atk go Mewtwo X! Mewtwo should stay #1 on this list, and in my opinion is the best Pokemon currently in existence.
Absolutely strong sweeper and attacker under most circumstances due to its high base Sp. Atk and Speed as well as having good abilities with or without its hidden.
Has access to moves of a number of different typing, allowing it to even hit its own weaknesses extremely hard, possibly even putting them down before they can even get a swing at it.
Also fantastic as a setup pokemon with baton pass and calm mind, as well as being able to shut down opponent's special attack setups with power swap. With so much utility on a pokemon as elegantly designed as Espeon, what's not to love? (Other than its shiny, but we don't talk about that.)
Espeon teamed with a decent baton passer may in fact be the best Pokemon in the game with it's high spec. Att and speed if you set this up right you've got an incredibly powerful Pokemon that can't be switched out by anything other than dragon tail and is immune to toxic etcetera I mean with just two calm minds it can take out any none resistant Pokemon in one hit with an iron defense and a speed boost (1 turn from scolipede) baton passed then 2 turns of calm mind that makes 7 stages boosted making stored power a 160 base power move and then stab makes it 240 power and then your say 385 spec. Att (my espeons spec. Att) is doubled to 770 aswel. No joke I played ubers as a joke n by fluke managed to get espeon set up and took down all the team including a mega rayquaza a darkrai and both primal Pokemon (had to use dazzling gleam on darkrai)
Espeon is so beautiful and is my favorite psychic type pokemon. It can read minds what do you expect? This pokemon is not number one, but why?my favorite eeveelution. It should be number one. Really.
Espeon shouldn't be higher than Metagross or Gardevoir, don't get me wrong it is an awesome pokemon and if Gardevoir didn't have a mega I would say their about equal
Here is how the ist should go:
then you can sprinkle the other legendaries in there, there not has important since their legendaries and we all know there good the the exception of a few questionable legends.
I almost literally fell in love with this Pokemon when I first played. And its not just because of its looks. I mean sure it played a bit part, I mean come on, this is the female version of a British gentleman (that would mean a lady but honestly it wrecks way too hard for it be a mere lady). Its special stats are one of the best in the game and it can take couple of hits physically as well since trough all the games I played with Gardevoir it never fainted from 1 hit when at full health. Truth be told the worst of its stats are still decent or above average and IT LOOKS CLASSY.
The most elegant Pokémon in existence, it's cry is mesmerising and it's mega evolution is extraordinary, no wonder gardevoir was the final Pokemon in Pokemon x & y, it is extremely powerful and its special attack and defense are very high. I have loved it since the start, to me it is a priority to catch a ralts and evolve it. I also love the improved fairy type, I also love how it can learn thunderbolt (electric type) and energy ball (grass type) giving it a wide range of type attacks, making it almost super effective against anything. My grade our knows psychic, dazzling gleam, thunderbolt and energy ball.
Looks cute and cool. Is OP. My best Pokemon on my team. Epic attack and defense. Can learn good moves including moonblast and future sight. Only has three weaknesses. All evolutions are cute and cool and OP too. Can mega evolve. I can't be stuffed saying all the other 6875 things that are awesome about Gardevoir. (Not to mention gallade,kirlia and ralts) My favourite Pokemon and its easy to tell why. For some pun I could also say 'Wynaut like Gardevoir? ' Love this pokemon and if I could have one pokemon to have in real life it would be this excellent pokemon. Also the 'brother' Version of gardevoir is gallade who can also mega evolve. I LOVE THIS POKEMON!
I have a gardevior on my black. Got it as a ralts in the beginning from this cool ap as well as mudkip, charmander, and turtwig. It has a amazing special attack and special defense. Great Wall and sweeper. Decent speedy too. Mine is still in the low 30's but it knows confusion, magical leaf, double team (this move has saved me so many times) and teleport (for those lazy people who want poke center fast) it will learn much better moves soon, but it is still amazing. Vote for this pokemon.
Come on people how can this on no. 5 it deserves number 1 because it can defeat top three very easily and I will tell you how.
You need to get some medicines like proteins, Carbos, etc to raise its special attack and special defense. Then give it an item that raises special attack and attack states. Then teach it overheat, shadow ball, nasty plot and focus blast. If you want to finish mewtwo use nasty plot then shadow ball finish. If you want to defeat any bug Pokemon how about overheat. If dark type comes in your way you have focus blast and if ghost comes use nasty plot then shadow ball again. You all know that overheat fells our special attack harshly so if we uses nasty plot three times you can use overheat three times with great power. If your hp is low use explosion. Mew is the best..
Mew is a good pokémon personally my favourite because he is small which makes him a harder target to hit. As for Mewtwo, Mewtwo is big and an easy target to hit.
Mew can also learn over powered moves, such as substitute for instance. Mewtwo was also created AFTER Mew. So its said that mew is more 'think-wise" by that I mean he thinks before his actions.
Mewtwo was being created and was said to have broken out, Therefore he was not fully generated. Mostly because it is said to not have a warm heart. I lovr phychic Pokemon out of all the types. But mew just gets to me.
Mew was the first 'man developed' Pokemon. So vote for him if you agree.
Mew is so much stronger than all the pokemon above but mewtwo but they are both super close, my friend and I did a test against all the pokemon above mew and only mew two beat mew, the rest of the psychic pokemon lost to it. Mew should be number 2
Mew. Literally the strongest Pokemon in the universe. It has the powers of all Pokemon, so eat your heart out, Arceus and Silvally, it is logically imposible to beat.
Alakazam is nearly perfect in singleplayer, multiplayer, and post-game on just about any game you can catch it. Training Abra requires either switch and kill or an Exp. Share, but it's well worth it for about the best you can get. With 135 special attack, a BLISTERING 120 speed, and access to amazing moves such as STAB Psychic and Dazzling Gleam, Alakazam can sweep a whole team with little to no setup. If you are the kind to set up, however, Alakazam has access to Calm Mind and both screens to be able to hold off any attack for your setup. Special walls aren't a problem either, because Alakazam has access to all of the elemental punches! There are a few holes in Alakazam however, such as how it can barely hold up to a Tyranitar unless Focus Blast can hit. If you can get past a few of Alakazam's weaknesses, it can be one heck of a team member.
I kinda would want to vote for gardevoir cause it is op and a unique fairy type. Count the mega evolution as well. Alakazam is probably better though and my choice of a psychic type. I used one in diamond and it teamed up very well with my Gengar. The combo is op. He is probably better cause he can mega evolve. He can counter dark types by learning either focus punch or drain punch. Psychic is an op move. Overall he is good and probably because he eats very healthy breakfasts. (I think the reason he has spoons)
Abra Kadabra Alakazam!
And like MAGIC any opponent before it is DEAD.
Espeon? The predictable, replaceable... Thing that somehow is an Eeveelution... How can Alakazam lose to ESPEON!?
I am genuinely annoyed to find an Espeon sitting on Alakazam!
Alakazam is a record breaker for having one of the highest sp. Attack of ALL Pokemon>>>745!
He's a better sweeper than INFERNAPE>>>>Infernape was my first Pokemon-I have a massive soft spot for it and so saying that alakazam is better a sweeper than it is saying something!
The original super physic type is below an Espeon.
In generation 1, this was probably one of the best pokemon ever. I beat gym 4, 5, and 6 mainly just with kadabra (I couldn't trade). Now that it has a mega and a whole bunch of new moves, it can dominate even better. Alakazam is just awesome, and dude that wrote the comment below mine, you really need to calm down, and, please actually write your opinion and evidence instead of just complaining that no one else does. It's kinda hippocritical.
Who doesn't think that metagross is the strongest psychic type? Cause if you think he is terroribble just think how intelligent he is with four brains so if you think about it you realise he has the strongest psychic power also be says a lot more the a wailord so the psychic energy for that is immense and imagine him falling from high in the air down to earth it would trick rayquaza into kyogre and Groudon are fighting again. If you look at his mega he is a bullet speed four armed twelve spiked battering ram come right at you.
His mega was in ubers, guys. Combined with great moveset and his appearance as the champions main, combined with the fact that it is a psuedo, it has earned it's place.
Metagross is the best pseudo-legendary as his type is better than others. Steel type always help. Its defense and attack are insane and can be a good wall. When it mega evolves it has a huge improvement in its speed and it turns into a destructive sweeper. This should definitely be much higher. Sorry for my grammer
This beast would wreck Mewtwo, Gardevoir,Alakazam and practically any other pure psychic. It has a bunch of resistances (4x for Psychic) and an insane attack and defense stay. Just give it any dark type move and it will cleave through any psychic Pokemon here. And I'm not even going to mention the mega...
Deoxys EX is the most terrifying psychic type Pokemon because of helix force. Helix force does 30 damage plus 30 more damage for each energy attached to the opponents Pokemon. So automatically Mewtwo EX's attack X Ball does at least 10 less damage than Helix force and does more and more increasing by 10 damage over Mewtwo EX's X Ball. Also Deoxys EX is one of the only Pokemon that can take down a Mega Charizard EX in one strike if it beats it to the punch. Also Deoxys EX has the ability Power Connect that increases team Plasma attacks by 10 damage for each team plasma Pokemon. I recommend teaming Deoxys EX with Xerneas EX and putting Deoxys on the bench until the opponent has a powerful Pokemon that uses lots of energy such as Zekrom EX.
Why is thing much lower than espe? True, that guy wrecked a team with it, but in most cases a regular pokemon like weavile pr hydreigon can beat. Plus, this guys huge stays, usefulness in any situation, and the fact it came to the earth in a world ending meteor says sonething.
How is deoxys number 10?! It is awesomer than mewtwo, alakazam and espeon by far. It has a way awesomer name and design than any of them. It also has multiple forms, allowing it to serve any role. Sweeper? Tank? Deoxys can fit any of these roles. It's signature move, Psycho boost is the most powerful psychic type move. Deoxys can also regenerate itself. It also has a huge move pool, being able to learn psychic, dark, fighting, ice, and who-knows what other type moves. Deoxys could kick mewtwo and mews butts. MEWTWO IS OVERRATED! My deoxys OHKOed a mega blaziken with psycho boost. It also swept a golem and gengar in a row, both OHKOes. It also sept a crawdaunt at a type disadvanage.
Deoxys is literally OP. It has four forms and they are all OP. Speed form makes Deoxys one of the fastest pokemon in the world, that means Choice Scarf Trick or Hazard Set up. Deoxys Attack is SO good, LOOK at Deoxys-A's stats, MASSIVE Attack and SpA makes Deoxys-A a decent sweeper. Deoxys-D is just a massive tank that resists some damage, that means Deoxys-D can just sweep with Toxic
Deoxy's signature move Psycho Boost normally OHKOes an opponent!
I mean, look at Deoxy's movepool as well! That's what makes him so great!
Gallade, the noble Knight of the Pokemon universe, is one of the most unique Pokemon out there. its stats are excellent, with 115 Special Defense and a whopping 125 Attack. With great STAB in Zen Headbutt, Psycho Cut, and Close Combat, and the Special bulk to take one of Gengar's STAB Shadow Balls, along with the cool design, it's a wonder Gallade hasn't topped the list yet.
Yeah, yeah Mewtwo has telekinetic powers, but does he have swords for elbows? NO! Gallade can absolutely knock out every other psychic type Pokemon if you teach him Night slash. With his high attack stat, he would knock out Mewtwo any day!
Gallade should be number one everyone! His psychic secondary type cancels out his fighting type weakness. Best moves to know: Hypnosis, psychic, close combat, and aura sphere. if you can add a fifth move, leaf-blade will be good also.
One of the best pokemon in my opinion because it has massive attack and it is well rounded in the other stats making it a perfect team member. It can learn many physical moves to wipe out all sorts of pokemon. attacks like night slash and leaf blade can throw your opponent a curve ball. As a bonus, when it mega evolves it gets a cape, even more awesome.
This thing is a tank. It's bulky enough to take some hits if it doesn't ohko it's opponents (which doesn't really happen. It usually does). Great move pool and helped me grab the Battle Symbols at the frontier
Latias was competitively better than Latios non-mega, but Mega Latios was better than Latias in mega form. I studied their stats and this was the result. Also, Latios’ Luster Purge and Latias’ Mist Ball was perfect in battle dude I love the Eon Duk
Why is latias so far below latios? It's mega is better
It even mega evolves so why is this so low!
Actually better than latias because if soul dew. Very strong attacker, and is very good with or without the mega, allowing you to mega evolve different pokemon. Very good.
Sorry, but latios should be number one on this list, in my opinion latios is the best thing that happened to pokemon. This is for two reasons 1 the weaknesses and strengths. It is weak to fairy, dragon, ice, and dark and strong to dragon, fighting and other common types. And reason 2: IT'S MY FAVORITE POKEMON!
My best dragon type is my precious Lapis Lazuli. I got my Latios with Chansey eggs or Audino eggs(with an indirect way) and everyone in PBB wants my Latios now. I cannot believe it's power. Intelligent, elegant, powerful and patience are words that describes Latios. I think it shoulb be 2nd or 3rd
Latios to me is the best because if he holds the latiosite, to me he can sweep with the moves stone edge, dragon dance, draco meteor and psyshock, change it nature to have high speed and give it 252 speed 252 spa or a and 4 hp
Reuniclus is awesome. In Pokemon Y, I was walking through a cave to train... And the surprise of my life, the awesomest thing ever appeared... A SHINY Solosis. I trained it until it became a Reuniclus and now it just beats everything. Even Dark/Water types.
Reuniclus is a good pokemon. If you can give it Trick Room, Dizzy Punch, and Psychic with a Twisted Spoon, it is possibly the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) Psychic-type Pokemon.
How is this Pokemon not in the Top 5? It's an amazing Sweeper with Trick room! It's base speed can't be outslowed, and with trick Room he's the Fastest DNA you ever had!
Even if Musharna does bulk better, Reuniclus does attack. Those two are equals!
Your doomed. It is the ultimate flinch master, and can easily lower your stats thanks to it's ability. It can grant any wish, and if someone wished for jirachi to have, say 10000 base stats, it would become the strongest pokemon. Plus, it's cute and gas a more creative name then "cat noise" (mew)
I wish pokemon were real (but they don't kill humans or destroy the world. I want it to be just like in the games and anime and manga and movies
Bruh, have you not seen the movie? He's like a fairy god parent mixed with a metagross! Come on! Then his ability allows for iron head to be the most annoying/ hilarious move ever! Don't even think for a second Jirachi she be in 13th with starmie! Jirachi should be in the top 8.
Another unbeatable Pokemon. The pokemon equivalent of a genie with free will.
He is based on one of the Creation Gods (the others being Arceus and Ho-oh) in Shinto mythology. If you are not convinced yet...check out the Silver tower and the Gold Tower that they are actual buildings in Kyoto dedicated to those Gods (dragon/male/silver), (phoenix/female/gold).Also the silver tower was burned in the past but was reconstructed...guess what in the game there's a burned tower, coincidence? I think not. Also for those who think that Lugia can reproduce. HE CANNOT. He is unique just like every other big legend. Stay out of the anime that no one should take seriously. Also, he can easily outclass Mewtwo...but I guess everyone goes for the classic choice.
Lugia... can seriously destroy stuff by breathing on it. Kaboom. Could K.O. almost any passer in one breath, with exceptions for Legendaries, Mythics, Ultra Beasts, and mimikyu (costume would be hurt first).
Wow. Lucia is the third best Pokemon of all time, actually. When measuring his stats (atk, definitely, spd, and stamina) Lugia is ranked third to Arceus (who is basically the 'God' of Pokemon) and Mewtwo (who was made in a scientific experiment. Also, he's awesome.
Lugia is an amazing Pokemon I mean why I it only 9. ALL the Pokemon listed above are way to overrated! except mew, Mewtwo. Lugia can beat all 3 legendary bird Pokemon (moltres,Zapdos,articuno) at the same time and can also beat ho-oh which is supposingly its opponent
God. Can also become a psychic type. Probably this low because it isn't quite that good as a psychic type.
Arceus, I don't think you're the king of all things. You are the king of toilets
Technically, since you didn't specify he had the plate, he's normal type.
East or west arceus is the best because it created the entire world
Starmie has always been a staple in my team since the very first game. Useful ingame and competetive. Okay HP, Decent bulk, Rapid spin, Useful ability(ies) and above average special attack and speed. And let's not forget its special move pool.
Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam (Blizzard), Thunderbolt (Thunder), Flash Cannon, Dazzling Gleam, Power Gem, Signal Beam, Hydro Pump, Grass knot, Hydro Pump, Scald. Etc
Also useful; Recover, Cosmic power.
Starmie is not just my favorite water/psychic type but is my favorite Pokemon in general, even took the time to get myself a shiny one with 5 ivs modest nature and natural cure, now with that out of the way, decent all around bulk, wide movepool, great special attack and speed whats not to like.
Awesome Pokemon. Fast, versatile, destructive, can take a few hits, really nice design, deceptively powerful
Why is starmie number 14, I got my starmie as a staryu and it is a total sweeper! It has a great move set decent attack. GO STARMIE!
My delphox has over 1000 speed and I think in super training I got its attack up to 997 almost beating ANYTHING even the toughest legendarys can't beat this fully evolved starter even though dark ghost etc could beat it in a secound its fire type moves can still defeat any Pokemon just with the right super training it can be a legendary its self but when it comes to darkrai nothing can stand a chance to it but dark vs physic/fire darkrai could win but if you use JUST the right moves Delphox could even beat darkrai so yeah and with one move that makes a Pokemon sleep and use roleplay move to take darkrais move you will win by a 96/100 chanse to win so not sure if this helps but I say Delphox is number 1 on my team! Number 2 on my team is charizard 3rd lurcadio 4th mewtwo but mewtwo is my secret weapon -3- 5th Yvelta 6th Zygarde -_- AND SOON TO BE ZAPDOS WHEN I CATCH THIS STUPID POKE! I've BEEN CHASEING IT ALL OVER THE STUPID KALOS REGI- never mind...
Delphox is a good choice, because can beat water pokemon with a grass knot.
Delphox has great speed attack and its speed is very amazing
Fire + Psychic
How could that go wrong
It doesn't have mega gay
Cool, so cute
Victini is the cutest Pokemon I ever seen. I think he is one of the top ten cutest. He is also is one of the strongest.
People that downvote Victini is probably because they don't like gen.5, personally he is one of the most strongest mythical pokemon so far.
Victini, Fire Psychic. Well that's just awesome. Victini is Also very cute and it has good stats and abilities,not the best but I think it should be number 2 or 3
Victini can't lose. No, I'm serious it's the victory Pokemon plus it's adorable
Sigilyph is very mystical, and it can beat Alakazam any day in the year. I have a Sigilyph, and I love it! Alakazam is based of Uri Geller, and guess what? Game Freak didn't even ask for his permission to make a Pokemon based off him! Alakazam is all time the worts Psychic-type. And Mega-Alakazam sucks more.
My god this thing is op just give it the ability magic gaurd, a flame orb, and a moveset of cosmic power, psycho shift, stored power, and roost aand you're opponent is pretty much done. Why is he not number two (after Mewtwo because he's awesome).
Sigilyph is such a good pokemon. just its typing makes fighting types suffer. If you give it a move set of synchronize + psycho cut + fly + roost, it will be really reliable against flying, fighting, bug, grass, poison, and sometimes synchronize can be useful against weak psychic types.
Best Pokemon with cosmic power spam+ psycho shift (flame orb)+ stored power and roost. 1 word if you do all these things.. OP
My spirit animal, literally love him in battle as well, just a frikin good pokemon. Screw Legendarys, this man is a legend
I said I love him I like him because he has a shellder biting his tail
He may be slow but his stats cover up for it
Slow toe tanks and a water type
Exeggutor has one of the highest Sp. A stats for a psychic type, excluding megas and legendaries. Also, he may not have high speed or attack, but normal attacking moves are just bad to give to a psychic type anyway. Also, his bad speed can easily be fixed with a move like sleeping powder or stun spore. Altogether with a moveset consisting of Psychic, Solar beam, Synthesis, and Stun spore/sleeping powder it has the capability to be a good pokemon to have. And who knows, with his alola form potential boosting his stats a lot.
I use it in Pokemon X and Y and it isn't that bad. For a Pokemon with seven weaknesses, it has good special attack, which is normal for phychic types. But it also has good attack and defense which makes it different from most phychic types. Combine that with a decent moveset with moves like sleep powder and leaf storm, and you got yourself a nice phychic type!
Great Pokemon high base defense, gets STAB with energy ball and psychic, may be slow but teach it trick room and BOOM problem solved. High Sp Attack too.
I beat alpha sapphire with exeggutor and he saved me from tough situations!
Can teleport before a master ball hits him. Master ball doesn't work?! IT LIED
Must use quick ball, worth it though when it evolves to alakazam
The most annoying wild Pokemon encounter ever...abra
He is so strong for a basic Pokemon and also cute!
Azelf is the best Pokemon ever!
Azelf looks good as shiny
Its also not a fairy type!
Plus super cute and legit!
Azelf is like the best Pokemon ever
I think it should be no. 1
My favorite Pokemon of the lakes
My favorite one of the lake trio
So, the powerful legendary that can summon other legendaries with a flick of the hand to wreak havoc and destruction...is at number 55?!
I think it should be in the top three as in trading card game it defeated alakazam in one hit
Would you like a piece of cake? Hoopa can get it for you. Want to control all legendaries & Mythicals? Hoopa can do that.
This thing has a beast of a dual type. Only dark can beat it. Really good sp attacker.
Next stage of Mewtwo
The second powerfullest Pokemon in the world
Its power is so exciting
It's a girl
Mega Mewtwo y fights very nicely
Its attacks are cool rest attack saves her power
It's my second favourite Pokemon
It looks very nice
PLEASE VOTE IT FOR ME! I am reqesting you
Seriously, why is this not first? People are seriously going insane. Seriously, I said seriously too times in a stanza, my English teacher with seriously kill me.
Mega Mewtwo y is even very strong
THIS SHOULD BE FIRST!
Is so cute and can use mimic which can copy the opponites Pokemon
Adorable.. shame it grows up to be as ugly as Mr. Mime
